At first a big sorry. I have not currently a command-line svn installed,
and none of the GUI-Tools available seem to be able to generate some
readable diff-format :-(

The changes would be (as known until now):

Some not so problematic changes (in core):

IRemoteResource defines three new Methods

        public String getComment() throws TeamException;
        public String getContentIdentifier() throws TeamException;
        public String getCreatorDisplayName() throws TeamException;

but I don't think that should be a problem to add them (but I don't know
by now how to make them return something useful, will get to this later)

In SVNWorkspaceRoot.scrubProjects() there was a TeamException catched
which is no longer thrown by any call in this method. One could (I
guess) work around this (if one whishes to have this code only once) by
using something like

catch (Exception ex) {
   if (ex instanceof TeamException) {
     throw SVNException.wrapException(e);
   } else {
     throw ex;

but maybe this will make stack-traces unusable?

Changes in UI:

TeamUIPlugin.runWithProgress(parent, cancelable, runnable);
Utils.runWithProgress(parent, cancelable, runnable);

PromptingDialog and IPromptCondition moved from
org.eclipse.team.internal.ui to org.eclipse.team.internal.ui.dialogs

Uses TeamImages.getImageDescriptor in some places, which no longer exists.

DetailsDialog moved from org.eclipse.team.internal.ui to

DetailsDialogWithProjects moved from org.eclipse.team.internal.ui to

Especially Label-decoration is very unstable and needs some work. Then I
(or someone else) needs to find the best way for providing compatibility
with Eclipse 2.x if running under 3.x.

One way would be to copy over the affected classes and provide a
"fragment" (if this works, I have only read about it by now), the other
way would be to provide the missing classes from the
org.eclipse-hierarchy in Eclipse 3.x.

I will try to find some time next week, but maybe you need to wait for
M3 (or next weekend in other words).

Another question: Did I understand it correctly, that you are moving
away from the wrapper-code provided by "svnup" and using the
wrapper-code which is available directly from subversion for future
